Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry, by Andrew B. Hughes

By Andrew B. Hughes

This is the 3rd of 5 books within the Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Synthesis series. 

Closing a niche within the literature, this can be the one sequence to hide this crucial subject in natural and biochemistry. Drawing upon the mixed services of the foreign "who's who" in amino acid learn, those volumes symbolize a true benchmark for amino acid chemistry, offering a accomplished dialogue of the incidence, makes use of and functions of amino acids and, by means of extension, their polymeric types, peptides and proteins.

The functional worth of every quantity is heightened by means of the inclusion of experimental procedures.


The five volumes conceal the next topics:

Volume 1: Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids

Volume 2: converted Amino Acids, Organocatalysis and Enzymes

Volume three: development Blocks, Catalysis and Coupling Chemistry

Volume four: defense Reactions, Medicinal Chemistry, Combinatorial Synthesis

Volume five: research and serve as of Amino Acids and Peptides


This 3rd quantity within the sequence provides a close account of contemporary advancements within the (bio-)synthesis of amino acids and peptides. Divided into elements, the 1st part bargains with amino acids as development blocks, together with the iteration of alpha-amino acids, beta-lactams, and heterocycles. the second one part is dedicated to the synthesis of peptides, with the focal point on good section synthesis. besides the fact that, answer part peptide synthesis is roofed besides, as are themes equivalent to coupling reagents, chemical ligation, peptide purification and automation.


Originally deliberate as a six quantity sequence, Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Chemistry now completes with 5 volumes yet is still complete in either scope and coverage.

Further information regarding the five quantity Set and buying info will be considered here.
